Beautiful hidden beach surprise at end!
Enjoyable if crowded trail. Nice views ands the added climb up to three old battery was unexpected. Will be back to check out some of the other trails in the danger location.
Very easy hike. Heavily used by inexperienced hikers.
Lovely short hike with a beautiful end view.
This is a basic, flat trail to Tennessee Beach and back. The first half or so is paved. Lots of parking. This could be a quick run, walk, or mt bike ride. I read the sign on the way out that says no dogs...oops. I get it, as many people don't pick up after their pets. I gave this a 3rd star because the small, private beach is cool.
There are two different types of Tennessee Valley Trails. One of them is the upper and the other is the lower. Depending on how much elevation you want to deal with, I recommend the upper trail of you want a trail with gradual incline. If you want something more flat, I suggest taking the lower trail. Nevertheless, you're rewarded with stunning views! Pack a swimsuit, bring your kids and pooch and it should be a BLAST for everyone!
Beautiful easy trail with a great view at the end.
Great trail. Steady ascent challenged my friend and I while we jogged and hiked to the top. Fog just made it dreamier. Easy parking on the road when we hit it up about 6:30 PM on a weekday.
Cute wooden footbridges and blackberry bushes added interest to the trail.
Trailhead to Muir Beach via Fox (steep) to Coyote to Green Gulch ( beautiful and high, the path winds down to Zen garden (part of Marin Organic) and on to Muir. Coastal Trail back (10mi)
